Y. U. S. A. A SHORT ACCOUNT OF OUR HAPPY VISIT TO DEAR OLD AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND. My dear Friends: We have just got back safely after our long 25,000-mile trip and so many friends have expressed their pleasure in the letter I sent out a month or so ago that it has occurred to me a further one might not be without interest. I also want to express to the many, many friends in the countries visited how deep was our appreciation of their all too kind reception and hospitality. Then again, my six- months' absence from the United States was largely made possible by Mr. Fred B. Smith and some friends here, and I hope for their sakes the service one was able to render made them feel it was a little worth while. These are the reasons for this informal and the last of my "occasional" letters. AuSTIlALIA Those who have never visited the Southern Lands have little idea of the vast geography of the Australian continent. It is territorially as large as the United States and contains over 3,000,000 square miles. It is divided into six states which, twenty-five years ago, federated into a Commonwealth much on the lines of the United States, and the newly-built Federal Capital at Canberra will shortly be open for governmental activities. It is interesting to note that the prize for the original design for the Federal Capital was won by a Chicago architect. We landed at Sydney — "The lovely Port of Sydney, Lies laughing to the sky, The bonny Port of Sydney, Where the ships of nations lie. You. shall never see such beauty, Though you sail the wide world o'er As the sunny Port of Sydney As we see it from the shore." This city of nearly 1,000,000 people is situated on a magnificent harbor guarded at the entrance by jutting headlands, and its innumerable bays wind for miles between hills covered in green trees, between which the beautiful suburban villas, most picturesquely situated, can be seen. Melbourne, capital of the State of Victoria, is nearly as large as Sydney and is distant 600 miles by rail. A mag- nificent, modern metropolis, which has been the Federal Capital. From Melbourne it was 500 miles to Adelaide, our destination for it was "Home." Australia only has a population of 6,000,000 people, 95% of British origin, and nearly half of this population is crowded into three cities. Vast spaces in Australia are thinly populated ! The concentration into urban areas, and the un- occupied territory in the North, Interior and West, make a great problem for future Australian statesmen. Australia has no "native" problem. The aboriginal inhabitants were never strong numerically and have offered no resistance to the progress of civilization. Australia's wealth is largely agricultural and pastoral. The chief sources of income are from wool, wheat, dairy products, fruit and minerals. 95,000,000 sheep feed on her grassy plains. Her local manufacturers are protected by an extremely high tariff against English as well as foreign goods, although a little higher on the latter. 1 OnWflRD <f . /?o se ^ I c C ■ r 7t> I m o a < 53 > -\ O I m p X o -» o D 30 > X m p o H O 9 C > I I X- 01) ^i 1 NEW ZEALAND GEOGRAPHY IN PICTURES #57 SCHOOL PUBLICATIONS BRANCH EDUCATION DEPARTMENT AUCKLAND ^ew Zealan/'^' RANGITOTO.
